Good stores satisfy C.E.O.’s. Great Stores Satisfy You!
The comment below was written by a skeptic and reluctant Liqui-Fire customer who lives in a cabin in the extreme northern region of Ontario.

I just wanted to post a comment about the product Liqui Fire. I have a cabin in Northern Canada and my septic pipe froze. The line is 3 ” and approx 20 feet were frozen with 13 feet under the ground. I read about Liqui Fire while researching how to thaw the line. I was skeptic that the product would work by just pouring it in the line. I spoke to my local hardware store owner to see if they had any. She advised that they didn’t but if I could find some I should buy it because it works. I still procrastinated ordering two bottles so I called the company in Ontario and spoke to the owner he said it would thaw the septic line no problem. He said 1 bottle should do the job but recommended having a second one on hand. I finally ordered the product after a week of thinking about it as to get the line thawed by a local steam company was going to cost several hundred dollars. The product arrived in less than a week after I ordered it. I was still skeptical that the product would work. I poured 1 bottle down the clean out and waited the 4 hours like recommended. I didn’t want to chance the line still being frozen so I poured the second bottle down the clean out. There was still ice visible in the line but the product sounded like it was running down the line. I waited another 4 hours then turned on the hot water to see if the line was thawed. IT WAS!! I probably could have used just one bottle but for 20 dollars I don’t mind using the second bottle, in the long run it has been a cheap fix to my frozen line. I ran several tanks of hot water down the line without any further problems. I will be ordering a couple more bottles for myself and a few to have on hand at the office. To say that I am amazed that the product works is an understatement. I will recommend the product to anyone that has frozen lines. It definitely saved me money. The only recommendation I would have is to shake the bottle well as the first bottle wasn’t completely mixed, but it still worked.
